ASSISTANT CAT HERDER

Gavin Krasner — Creative Director

 

Gavin studied graphic design in London and went on to complete a Master of Arts at University for the Creative Arts where he ended up making a 25 minute film which his lecturer despised. (It was called 5 Days One Summer).

With over 25 years of experience across many industry sectors, Gavin’s experience is vast. He’s worked with global fashion brands and record labels, blue chip insurers and interior designers. Chops For Tea was set up just over 10 years ago when Gavin moved to Melbourne. 

Over the years Chops For Tea has helped its client base develop and market their brands, products and services with passion, enthusiasm and a high degree of skill. Chops For Tea (with their partners) provide an almost full agency service at the heart of which lies an indepth knowledge on how to shape and craft brand communications.
